Lisarow to Ourimbah - Pacific Highway upgrade between Ourimbah Street, Lisarow and Glen Road, Ourimbah
Roads and Maritime is upgrading the Pacific Highway between Ourimbah Street at Lisarow and Glen Road at Ourimbah. The upgrade involves widening the highway to provide two lanes in each direction to improve traffic flow and safety.
Roads and Maritime Services is planning and delivering the Pacific Highway upgrade between Narara and Ourimbah in stages.
The NSW Government allocated $70 million for this section of the upgrade.
The concept design and review of environmental factors for the section of highway between Ourimbah Street, Lisarow and Glen Road, Ourimbah was displayed for community comment in June 2011.
In October 2011 the Review of Environmental Factors was determined and the project received approval to proceed. View or download the review of environmental factors (PDF,7.25Mb) and submissions report.
The construction contract was awarded to Civil Mining & Construction Pty Ltd in February 2016.
The upgrade is shown on the project map and includes:
- Two lanes in each direction on the Pacific Highway
- New traffic lights with pedestrian crossing facilities at the Ourimbah Street, Teralba Street and Walmsley Road intersections
- A shared pedestrian and cycle path on the western side of the highway
- New bridges over Cut Rock Creek.
The upgrade will improve traffic flow and travel times for around 29,000 motorists travelling this 1.6 kilometre section of highway each day. It will also improve safety for motorists, pedestrians and road users.
We expect to complete the project in late 2018, weather permitting.
